Can they take my house?
My father passed away with about fifteen thousand dollars owed to many creditors, the first mortgage was payed off immediately. The second mortgage is taking a bit longer to get rid of. I have lived in this house since before my father bought it, but my name was not listed as a beneficiary or anything. He didn't have a will so the house has to go through probate as an asset, but I'm afraid they will make me sell the house to pay off his credit cards. Can credit card companies do this or will they typically write it off? I don't want to lose my home.
